General Information:

First licensed as WN7LNW (Novice) in January 1969 in Phoenix, Arizona and currently a holder of a Extra Class license. I prefer to operate CW and RTTY modes.

My station consists of Elecraft K-3 serial # 3465, HF remote Kenwood TS-480SAT, FT-1000MP, Kenwood TS-440S/AT, assorted homebrew QRP transceivers, Ameritron AL-80B, Alpha 76A amplifier. Antenna system is a 2 element, 5 band HEX beam at 82 ft. and variety of wire antennas.

You can usually find me on 160 meters during the ARRL and CQWW 160 meter contests ever winter. Operate these contests portable from the Test Facility using various 160antennas and NE/SW and NW/SE beverage receiving antennas.

Enjoy building battery operated QRP radios and taking them on hikes into the near by National Parks on weekends and during QRP contests.

Built a Elecraft K-2 QRP transceiver, serial #660, giving me both SSB and CW QRP capability. Often take my K-2 or NorCal 40A transceivers into the field or mobile in both winter and summer months to operate QRP battery power. Also built RockMite and SMK-1 QRPp 40 meter transceivers.

If you hear me on the air operating WA7LNW/QRP please give me a call.

Occupation: Manager, Hurricane Mesa Test Facility. 6,500 acre supersonic ejection seat test track facility owned and operated by UTC Aerospace Systems to develop, improve and test aerospace escape systems.
